Description L3support 2004-10-04 23:49:29 UTC
Description of problem:
Several problems happen as we install ia32 rpm packages in ia64
- rpm(1) donesn't relocate direcotries including files whose filecolor
is 1 to /emul/ia32-linux.
- pre or post processing errors are output in /root/install.log when
we  install RHEL4 beta1 with full installation.
  For example,
   error: %post(libgcc-3.4.1-10) scriptlet failed, exit status 255,
   error: %pre(dbus-0.22-4) scriptlet failed, exit status 255,
   error:   install: %pre scriptlet failed (2), skipping dbus-0.22-4,

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL4 beta1 with full installation
after installation,
2. See '/' directory
3. See '/root/install.log' file
Actual results:
- /emul/ia32-linux doesn't exist
- There are several errors in /root/install.log 

Expected results:
- rpm(1) relocates the directories to /emul/ia32-linux.
- There are no errors in /root/install.log.

Additional info:

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2004-10-05 12:15:45 UTC
1) no /emul/ia32-linux was a missing piece of configuration,
fixed in rpm-4.3.2-8.

2) is a kernel problem, elf32 execution is disabled in ia64 kernels.

Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2004-10-05 12:20:45 UTC
It's not a kernel problem.
It's probably a missing ia32el package.

(note, newer ia64 cpus don't have any elf32 execution capability at all)
